Kum & Go is offering a wide variety of amenities to customers in Rock Springs, Wyo. at its newly built store.
At 6 a.m. on Thurs., July 14, Kum & Go opened the doors to its newly built location in Rock Springs, Wyo. The new store is located at 3910 Foothill Boulevard.
The brand new, 6,200+-square-foot store, which features the new Marketplace store design with a variety of unique offerings, is the first Kum & Go of its kind in the area. To encourage customers to try out those offerings, the first 99 customers to arrive on Thursday morning received a coupon for a 99-cent whole pizza. On Friday, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., customers may enjoy free samples of fresh pizza and new made-to-order sandwiches.
Developing this distinctive store model took nearly two years, and the result is an entirely new concept. The centerpiece of the store is an expanded and open food preparation area that customers can see from the moment they enter. Other location features include:
- Elevated food experience with Kum & Go’s “Go Fresh Market”
- Open kitchen layout, clear aisles and easy-to-navigate zones
- Seating inside with heated patio seating outside
- Complimentary Wi-Fi and charging stations for customers
- Designed for LEED-certified status, using energy efficient and sustainable design practices
Additionally, outside the store is a custom-designed tribute to Rock Springs, Wyo. created specifically for this location. An eight-foot tall and seven-foot wide ampersand (paying homage to Kum & Go’s slogan “Where & means more.”) was designed and produced by the award-winning art studio Sticks, it honors the community of Rock Springs with key words and images that reflect the area’s attractions and slogans on one side. The opposite side showcases the Kum & Go core values and culture.
“This new footprint represents everything that Kum & Go strives to be for our associates and for our customers,” said Kum & Go president and CEO Kyle Krause. “This is the evolution of our brand promise and business approach. Now customers can truly experience the “more” that we provide.”
To celebrate the opening, Kum & Go will make a $1,000 contribution to the Sweetwater One Public School Foundation.
Kum & Go operates four stores in Rock Springs and 16 in the state of Wyoming. The store will be open 24 hours a day.
Future locations of this new layout are planned for 2016 in Iowa, Colorado, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Missouri and Arkansas.
